Chrono Master Problem……resolved

The only problem with my Chrono Master Chronometer…..

…..is the case back medallion:

I did manage to find a replacement recently:

And today I got to work – after taking advice from Brian (aka 31 Jewels) I placed the case back in hot water for a short while. I used tap water as a gentle start to what I thought would be a tough process, but in fact it popped off easily. Helped I would think by the moisture getting behind the medallion and weakening the bond:

The new one has gone in with epoxy so should be a permanent addition! :

Pleased to have an undamaged example now 🙂
